KIM Kardashian says fans shouldn’t be worried about her husband Kanye West’s health after reports he was rushed to Melbourne’s Epworth Hospital on ahead of his Rod Laver concert.
Speaking to the Herald Sun from her hotel in Sydney, the reality star said Kanye was on the mend.
“He is feeling better; it’s just precautionary to go to the doctor if you’re not feeling well to make sure you have a good show.”
Her comments are the first since Kanye was rushed to hospital.
The rapper arrived on a stretcher carried by paramedics at Epworth Hopital in Richmond, in the city’s inner east, just after 2pm yesterday, a witness told Woman’s Day on Thursday.
His tour promoter Live Nation had no comment on West’s hospital visit, but said the Yeezus show will go on.
“Kanye went on stage last night in Melbourne as scheduled,” a Live Nation spokeswoman said the same day.
“The tour continues at Sydney’s Allphones Arena tomorrow and Saturday, before concluding in Brisbane on Monday night.”
It is understood he was released from hospital after 4.30pm.
One witness said doctors were concerned the Gold Digger hit maker had suffered a seizure.
Kanye’s security team “burst in and cleared the area” where Loraine Terry’s daughter was being treated.
She said everyone left the MRI area except for herself, and her daughter who was in the middle of a scan so couldn’t immediately move.
But Epworth Health Care today responded to the claims and said patients were treated with respect.
Epworth Health Care said on Twitter today: “Approx 50 patients in Epworth (emergency department). All treated with respect & according to severity of symptoms — which we do not discuss publicly.
“Individual patient details are private,” the hospital added. “Epworth does not discuss these publicly without permission from the patient concerned.”

While in Melbourne the pair hit high-end shops on Bourke st and later Block Arcade, and made a high-profile visit to South Yarra where fans clamoured for a look at selfie queen Kardashian.

It is no secret that the corporate media idolises the celebrity circus of the Kardashian clan.
What is worse is that the actions of this new age 'Reality Star' trailer park trash behoviour is condoned.
The throwing out of patients is unacceptable, yet happens all the time.
They are no more special than any other person, and no right is given to them to throw out other people waiting for health care.
Appalling behaviour, supported by the 'authorities'.
And the herd population will still line up to watch this foul mouthed trash perform.
